Big Family Cooking Showdown

Why Bake Off's Nadiya Hussain is living the dream

“It’s a totally different beast,” she insists.

The Big Family Cooking Showdown, which is presented by Hussain and Zoe Ball, pits 16 families against each other in weekly culinary crusades, judged by chefs Rosemary Schrager and Bruno Locatelli.

“It’s about family cooking and different cultures. There’s baking involved depending on who wants to bake,” she explains.

The ten-part series is due to launch in the autumn.
